2012年全国混凝土圬工Association (NCMA) Residential Design Award of Excellence, the 5502-square foot residential home known as Desert Arrow is part of the 8,000-acre DC Ranch planned community of Scottsdale, AZ. The glass and masonry design allows the home to become one with the natural landscape. Various applications of rough-hewn Mesastone® masonry mimic the properties of the surrounding McDowell Mountains and flow seamlessly from the exterior into the interior of the home. In addition to creating a congruent dimensional design, extending the masonry walls throughout the interior created a thermal lag, thus offering natural cooling by day and warmth by night. The angular design of the structure and roofline mimics both the profile of the mountainous backdrop and the angular nature of the masonry.
